Last one was regarding the previous post...

It's difficult to run 2 pumps without raising concerns. like I said it's a little hard to explain. his current pump is under powering, solution would be to replace it with a bigger pump. Adding a bigger pump to a smaller pump can cause problems. Big pump pushes more and forces the little pump which could burn it out. like wise the other way around. the small pump can push out as much as the bigger pump is sucking in.
If 2 pumps are to be used the only thing I can say to make it work is to have 2 of the exact same pumps. even still, the flow rate would be varying around the circuit. Hope that makes more sence.
